文/ 法國海外屬地 Maya Jaeger
我叫Maya Jaeger，今年34歲。我出生於法國的海外屬地。我的母親是中國人， 而我的父親是法國人。
My name is Maya Jaeger. I’m 34 years old. I was born in a territorial department of France. My mother is Chinese and my father is French.
When I was young, I had difficulty understanding my family because the marriage between my mother and my father was not successful. As such, I grew up with emotional instability. In my youth, I had done many inappropriate deeds and wrongdoings. I drank alcohol, smoked cigarettes and had broken relationships. These caused me more unhappiness and misunderstandings in turn. Later, I had difficulty in finding good career opportunities and felt also that my health was really affected. Sometimes, I would feel really oppressed and anxious.
In April 2014, I attended Master Lu’s Dharma Convention in New Zealand and I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to have my totem read. During the Dharma talk, I developed a very good impression of Master Lu and he gave me a lot of confidence — he had touched my heart. During the Dharma convention, I also felt less pain on my body. I was absolutely convinced that all that Master Lu said is really the truth.
During the Totem reading, I listened carefully to what Master Lu said and took his instructions seriously. He told me that foreign spirits were the origin of my discomfort. This was also why I was always scared of others and felt constant physical discomfort. He had also mentioned that I had done inappropriate deeds. He also told me the number of Buddhist scriptures that I have to recite daily and the number of Little Houses that I have to offer to my karmic creditors.
After the totem reading in New Zealand, Guan Yin Bodhisattva appeared in a dream. I was very happy to have received blessings from Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Immediately after, I started to perform daily recitations and recited Little Houses everyday without interruption. My health started to show gradual improvement.
When I started to perform recitation, I was always thinking about the horrible things that happened in my life and all the horrible things that have never left my heart. Indeed, I always feel that Buddhas and Bodhisattva know me, listen to me, see me whenever I perform recitation and that they can also understand me and help me. Progressively, all these dark and horrible things disappeared and transformed into light.
When I first started to offer Little Houses, I would feel tired and need to sleep for 20 to 30 minutes to feel better. However, I was determined to recite Little Houses and continued to persist day after day.
After 3 years of reciting Buddhist scriptures and offering Little Houses diligently, I can confirm that this practice helped me to recover from illness. My health has improved and I have enhanced all aspects of my life.
I have been practicing Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door for 5 years and I have had the opportunity to attend the 2015 and 2016 Dharma Conventions in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Sabah and Jakarta. I also attended the 2018 Kuala Lumpur and 2017 and 2019 Singapore Dharma Conventions.
I can affirm that Guan Yin Bodhisattva saved my life. Practicing Buddhism and performing recitations has given me a second chance at life, cured my illnesses and allowed me to have a better life. Now, I have become a better person and I am fully confident to propagate Buddhism and help others.
Deepest gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, Dharma Protectors and Master Lu.
Practicing Buddhism has helped me to understand the true meaning of life.
Practicing Buddhism has helped me to understand myself and the suffering and difficulties encountered previously.
Practicing Buddhism has helped me to repent and repay my karmic debts.
Practicing Buddhism has helped me to find happiness.
Practicing Buddhism has helped me to have better relationships with my parents.
I express my deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva and to Master Jun Hong Lu to have given me this wonderful opportunity to learn Buddhism and accomplish good deeds.
I hope that my experience will inspire you and to help you to understand how is important to believe and practice Buddhism.
